The story of the Duplex locomotives of the Pennsylvania Railroad is not the happiest, with these complicated engines of classes S1, T1, Q1 and Q2 arriving right at the end of steam development. Only ten years passed between the first delivery of twenty-six Q2s, and the withdrawal of the last from service. The painting shows one of these magnificent machines doing the job she was designed for – pulling a heavy freight up a long hill.
